Amazon offers the Eton American Red Cross FRX3+ Emergency Weather Radio with Smartphone Charger for $39.99 shipped. Normally $52 at most places and Amazon, this is the lowest we’ve ever seen it offered. With these winter storms whipping through right now, having a way to keep your phone charged when external batteries die is crucial. Rated 4.1/5 stars.

American Red Cross FRX3+ features:

  • This is the emergency radio with a large, ergonomic hand crank that requires little effort to generate power for delivering a superior combination of sound quality, playback time, and reception.
  • Its superior audio quality provides clear, crisp sound that allows you to hear every word of an NOAA Weather Band, unlike other models that produce distorted, static-filled audio.
  • Its superior battery provides 8.7X longer playback time than lesser models. Unlike other radios with analog tuners, it has an easy-to-adjust digital tuner that receives radio stations.
  • Additional superior features include an integrated LED flashlight, USB port for charging smartphones, mini-USB cable, and a built-in solar panel for supplemental power.
  • Utilizes a rechargeable lithium ion 3.7V battery (included). 5 3/4″ H x 7″ W x 2 2/3″ D. (1 1/4 lbs.)
